1And the light answered me and said, You can indeed cleanse this sanctuary; 1 Lit. ‘place’. but I must let you know everything the Lord has commanded me to tell you. 2And I said, Everything he has commanded me, his servant, I will listen to and do. 3And again he said, 4This is what the Lord says, If you do attempt to cleanse Satan's sanctuary, 1 Lit. ‘place’. he will turn against you in anger and fight against you; but although he will afflict you with many calamities, he will not be able to kill you. 5He will take your possessions away: he will destroy your children. 6But if you endure, I will make your name famous among all generations on earth till the end of time. 7And I will return your possessions to you, and double shall be restored to you, 8so that you may know that the Lord 2 Lit. ‘he’. has no favourites and richly repays everyone who obeys him. 9And you will be raised up at the 10resurrection; for you will be like a boxer in the games 3 Lit. ‘like an athlete boxing’. who keeps the struggle up and gains his crown. 11Then you will know that the Lord is just, true, and strong, and gives strength to his elect.
